It’s summer and strawberries are back in season. Well, all the berries pretty much are. When I got my hot little hands on a local limited edition ‘strawberry’ almond milk, I knew exactly what I wanted to do. And that was to make some more Amish style oatmeal.
I’ve made Amish oatmeal before, and it’s always been one of my favorites. It’s great to have on hand and ready to bake first thing in the morning. I’d almost venture to say that Amish oatmeal would be the grandparent to the new fangled raw overnight oats. This time around though, I piled in the strawberries along with the strawberry almond milk and…
Of course, with it being on the warmer side of things here in Texas, it’s really a blessing that this is baked in the morning while it’s still considered somewhat cool. I can barely stand to use the oven during the middle of summer, it just heats my house up way too much.
Baked oatmeal, like this one, is generally a good breakfast for the kiddos too. Especially if you’ve got a few or even as something to wakeup to after a slumber party.
Once this stuff was done, I served it with a touch more of that strawberry almond milk and some sliced strawberries for garnish. Other than that? It’s good to go exactly the way it is, warm out of the oven.
